Hall Table

I made this hall table for my wife for Christmas. The lumber comes from my own trees that have died and come down on my 3.5 acre lot in southwest Missouri. I cut them into planks using a chainsaw and an "Alaska sawmill" attachment then stack and dry until ready to use. I use my Ryobi 13 inch planer to plane the material to thickness, and my table saw and a jig to straighten the edges. My Ryobi compound miter saw cuts the boards to length and the pieces are sanded and glued and nailed together. The finished project is stained with a Minwax golden oak finish.

  • i have never owned a planer before , and am shopping around but it is all french to me because i dont know what to look for to begin with.i took up wood working to ease the boredom of retirement, and i am getting better but think i could use a planer. i make flower boxes and beches and sectionals . i just started to want to make all furniture out of 2x4s [i think 2x4 outdoor stuff looks great . to my point -how do you feel about your ryobi planer? is it a great tool? would you recomend i buy one? thanks paul shaw hulkster51@gmail.com
